Hiked half of the Rainbird Trail, joining it at the steps above Third Ave. Great way to get done views if you are in Alaska and have limited time, but be warned - there are lots of steps to get up to the trail. Lots of shady woodland and some great views back on Ketchikan and the harbor. I'd planned to try the hike up to Deer Mountain but the iffy weather and lack of time kept me away. This was a great, much shorter, alternative with some nice views and a bit of elevation gain.
